Vieques - This ideal vacation destination is located 7 miles east of Puerto Rico and is a long skinny island, populated in the middle part only. The rest of Vieques is devoted to the many reserves of US Fish & Wildlife
and the DRNA. These reserves dominate 2/3 of Vieques Island and consist mainly of dry forest and beaches. The world famous bioluminescent bay is what attracts many people in the first place but they return for the beautiful, isolated beaches. The population of Vieques is around 10,000. The principal economy is based on tourism and fishing. Government jobs also play a large part. There is not even one traffic light but there are many horses in the roads. You should rent a jeep on Vieques to enjoy this island fully.

Vieques - The town of Isabel Segunda, on the north coast, is the historic part and the main or only real town. The ferry docks there. The plaza in the center of town is surrounded by city hall and churches. Main street has the post office, two banks and general stores. On the south coast of Vieques, Esperanza has a nice waterfront, which is the tourist 'strip'. Lodging is scattered around the island. There are 3 guesthouses in Isabel, many in Esperanza and many in the surrounding countryside. The one Luxury Resort is the W, on the north coast. Restaurants are everywhere and in multitude! The biobay can be visited by kayak or pontoon boat. Tours start at $30. The only bargain you may find in all of Vieques! .. other than the great lunch at El Patio Restaurant in Isabel.
